Default 2010 prius mechanical key

I have a 2010 prius. I can't seem to find out where on the car I insert the mechanial key if needed. I checked out the manual and it does not show where the mechanical keys is inserted. On the older models you inserted the smart key in tact and you had a key hole near it. My 2010 prius has a mechanical key but no place to put it. HELP

See your manual, page 541.

The "cut key" is only for use opening the driver's side door. If the remote's battery is dead, then you physically touch the smart key (fob) to the power switch with the brake held down. A buzzer will sound. Within 10 seconds, press the POWER button, while continuously holding down the brake pedal.
